Featured Fit Chick – Chris

  Chris Bayon How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’ve been a Fit Chick member for 3 years and was brought by a referral from my friend, Kelly Wyjad. What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My greatest accomplishment has been getting my strength back and my body feeling 10 years younger. What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? Everyone needs a motivator in their life like Angie and I’m blessed she is a part of mine!  She keeps me motivated! My biggest obstacle is the inability to have a set schedule due to travel for work. I’ve been known to be a challenge drop out in the past so I’ve come into 2017 with a new thinking that it’s not all black and white.  There can be some grey area so long as you keep going. What is your favorite part of FCE? My favorite part of FCE is the challenge of the boot camp workouts and the ability to keep pushing yourself.  I’m never bored. What advice would you offer to newbies?  The quote I’ve embraced for 2017 is … Continue reading

Featured Fit Chick – Dee

Dee Thompson How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? —I joined in October 2016.

What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? I am strengthening my upper body more everyday. What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? The camaraderie keeps me motivated. Making myself go to classes, even when I’m exhausted is a big obstacle, but I’ve learned that I will be energized and feel better afterwards. What is your favorite part of FCE? The laughter that pushes us all through the end of classes! There are many fun and humorous women at FCE and I’m doing great things for my body and health!

Featured Fit Chick – AnnaMarie

AnnaMarie How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? I’m not even sure anymore how long I’ve been with FCE! I came to a Zumba class with friends from work back in 2011, I believe. Shakin’ it in front of a room full of people intimidated the hell out of me! I did Zumba for about a year before Dawna suggested I try the Boot Camp classes. I’ve also done Kickboxing with Stephanie since she started it up a few years ago and now I can’t imagine a Saturday morning without it! What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? CONFIDENCE!  I’ve accomplished so many amazing things since I started here: climbing Bierstadt, running a few 5k races, improved numbers on assorted lab tests,  having the confidence in my body to do a boudoir photo session, getting my running time down to a 10-minute mile… who knows what’s yet to come?! What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? My biggest obstacle has been my own body. I tore an ab muscle two years ago and had to take a long break from any activity. … Continue reading

Featured Fit Chick – Nikki

Nikki Lee  How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? My experience at FCE has empowered me to take a firm hold of my future and live my very best life! What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My most major accomplishment since becoming an FCE member would have to be my overall strength. I love that I can finally see some muscle in my arms and that’s a reminder of all my hard work.  What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? My motivation comes from wanting to be healthy and to keep up with my kids. When I first started working out, I had horrible exercise-induced asthma. Each time I worked out, it was a struggle. However, every week I could see that I was building stamina and strength. What is your favorite part of FCE? I love the quick, and intense boot camp classes. I feel that I get a great workout in a short amount of time. I also love the instructors and the members. What advice would you offer to newbies? The advice that I would give to new members … Continue reading

Featured Fit Chick – Dorothy

Dorothy Noble How long have you been a member of Fit Chick Express and what brought you here? My friend Deb told me about FCE back in 2012.  I have been a member since then but had to take some time off because life got in the way.  During that time, I worked out on my own but missed FCE a lot.  I kept in touch but missed the women, workouts, and challenges. What has been your greatest accomplishment since becoming a member of FCE? My greatest accomplishment is being able to hike/climb 14ers!  It takes a lot of strength, endurance and perseverance to get to the top.  It takes, not only physical ability, but mental as well.  FCE gives you both – the physical strength, endurance and the mental capacity to stick it out and know you can do it. What keeps you motivated? What obstacles have you had to overcome? My motivation is purely to keep myself strong and healthy so I can continue to hike and climb mountains, keep up with my kids (and one day grandkids), help people, travel the world and truly live each day. I think the biggest obstacle all women face is time … Continue reading
